Ding ding ding! We have a winner! The nosuid option was indeed set on the partition (no idea what the rationale was for that). Thanks MadHatter. Please promote this to an answer so I can upvote it properly. Can't believe I didn't think to check this.

OK, thanks very much Mark, this worked perfectly. I created a new group nopw and added the privileged user to it. Expanded answer below

This might work. I will experiment and report my findings. It certainly would be useful to have a pam_user module analogous to pam_group. The pfSense distro I am working with does not have pam_listfile, which might otherwise have been an option

This is a pfSense box. It does not have sudo. It does not have ports. It does not even have portsnap. It does, however, have PAM, which is why I want to use PAM and not sudo and not ports.

This is FreeBSD. I do not have sudo. I want to do this via PAM.
